After sharing a few Star Wars-related holiday highlights, we devote the entirety of this episode to discussing our initial thoughts and impressions of “Stranger in a Strange Land,” the debut chapter of The Book of Boba Fett.
In our final episode before The Book of Boba Fett debuts, Ryan and John discuss the progress of the #BlackoutStarWarsEclipse movement, Book of Boba Fett news (including the revelation that the trailers only show footage from the first half of the first episode), and a new Han and Chewie series from Marvel. We finish up the show proper with John’s early impressions of Tales From The Galaxy’s Edge.
After we sign off, we include a Spider-Man: No Way Home *spoiler-filled* discussion so be sure to avoid that if you haven’t yet seen the film.
Much of this week’s episode is focused on Star Wars Eclipe, the newly announced High Republic-era game from developer Quantic Dream. As much as we’d like to be excited about a new project bringing together two of our favorite aspects of Star Wars fandom (High Republic and games), we’re disgusted by Lucasfilm Games choosing to partner with David Cage and Quantic Dream. Ryan walks us through the long history of accusations and abuse from the studio and we ultimately explain why we won’t be buying or playing the game.
After that discussion we save what we (kinda, maybe?) love by discussing a Rogue Squadron production update and Crimson Reign #1.
